Brad Penny (5-7, 5.45) vs. Jason Marquis (3-3, 5.02).
COMMENTS: Here we are, just having lost a humiliating series to the Rockies. Now we're one win away from taking a four-game series against the best team in baseball. Additionally, the Diamondbacks lost today, so a Dodgers win would put them only three games back in the standings.
Penny gets the chance to not embarrass himself on national television. He's not improving as rapidly as Derek Lowe, but the Dodger bats figure to do some damage against Marquis. And let's hope Dodger Stadium's five o'clock shadows don't mess the players up too much today. We don't anyone going down for ESPN's sake.
